The ASERT Collaborative Eastern Region and the Philadelphia Autism Project will be at the Autism Speaks Walk in Philadelphia promoting voting education. The Office of City Commissioner Al Schmidt has partnered up with  the ASERT Collaborative Eastern Region and the Philadelphia Autism Project to provide this opportunity.  The Philadelphia City Comissioners are a three member bipartisan board of elected officials in charge of elections and voter registration for the City of Philadelphia.

 There are an estimated 239,492 individuals living with a disability and 4,617 individuals with autism in Philadelphia.  Under the Help America Vote Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, individuals with disabilities have specific rights to vote privately and independently. Accessibility and the opportunity to practice voting are extremely important.

 “As the Chair of the Council Committee on Disabilities, I applaud ASERT and the Philadelphia Autism Project for their work in providing voter education for all citizens regardless of their differences. Further and as the Father of an Autistic teenager, it is important to engage all Philadelphians in the voting process so that their voices will be heard,” states Councilman- At-Large Derek S. Green, who is an avid advocate in the autism community.

 Autism Speaks Walk participants can visit The ASERT Collaborative and Philadelphia Autism Project table at Citizens Bank Park on October 22, from 8:30am-1:00pm.  Participants can practice voting while asking questions about the voting process and accommodations as well as learning about autism resources in Pennsylvania. 

 More information about the Philadelphia Autism Project can be found at www.phillyautismproject.org.

 Media interested in attending the event can contact Sarah Greer, Communications Specialist, The ASERT Collaborative Eastern Region at 215.571.3183 or sarah.l.greer@drexel.edu.
